SIEPR Policy Forum on Jobs Now and Jobs in the Future
The financial crisis has resulted in rising unemployment, and a fear we might be seeing a situation not experienced since the 1930s. The Policy Forum looks at a range of issues. First, where are we right now and how is the rest of the world doing? Next, how will this affect manufacturing and what is the Administration's next steps? In particular, what form of stimulus is the best for reducing unemployment.
There are also concerns about the long term - can clean tech lead the way, what about the traditional Wall Street positions, and can medical entrepreneurship turn a problem into a growth area?
